Ruger American Rifle | SOTG 979

Professor Paul has a new Ruger American Rifle that he is in the process of thoroughly evaluating. During today’s show, Paul will highlight some of the impressive features of the new Ruger rifle and he will give his impressions thus far during our Brownell’s Bullet Points segment.

During our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters, we will consider modern holster designs for concealed carry. Do you really need straps and snaps to keep your gun securely in the holster?

Also, our good friend, Nicholas Orr, has asked us to remind you all about his latest book. Professor Paul will perform a live read of the new fiction work: Sin City; the Operator Book 2.

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share. If you’ve got any questions, here are some options to contact us:
